For the first time, I'm already longing a little bit for the next winter season and a lake full of birds.
I've got used to visit the lake area when the weather forecast indicated a chance of a 'red' sunrise. As spring was 'entering' gently, day by day the groups of hibernating birds became smaller and now the lake is almost 'empty'.
Fifteen minutes after sunrise a small group of Canada Geese landed on the water. I was disappointed as the red warm reflections on the water were transformed into hard light. As soon as I saw their breath in the golden light, I immediately had to think of one of my first LP's with a golden cover and I heard Ian Gillan singing 'Smoke on the water, and fire in the sky'!
For me it's time to say goodbye to the lake area (also known as the Landschotse Heide) for some weeks; for sure I will be back soon when the beeches are green and/or the first dragonflies will have emerged.
Jibt dir dit Leben mal een Buff, denn weene keene Träne. Lach Dir'n Ast und setz Dir druff und baumle mit de Beene.
